what mitt romney may be throwing his way. the bottom line, though, as you pointed out, both campaigns really trying to lower expectations. you hear aides with the campaign saying that the president has not had a lot of time to practice as opposed to mitt romney who went through the primary season and has a lot of experience. and the president himself last night in a grass roots event in las vegas also started playing a little bit of that game. take a listen. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you are! >> i don't know about that, you know. who's going to put the most points on the board. >> you are! >> no, no. governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> the president will be spending a couple of days out in nevada preparing for the big debates. john kerry, by the way, will be playing the role of mitt romney. he's someone who has a lot of experience debating but also knows mitt romney very well as he comes from massachusetts. now, the big issue, though, is who will both of these candidates be able to sway in the d

during the primary season. you got a few times for both mitt romney and president obama to show their stuff, this first debate is huge. largely because the race is tight, in the battleground states, the president seems to be really gaining an advantage. and generally, you know, you can't decide as a voter to fire somebody until you're sure that the replacement can do a good job. this is that moment when you're going to have a huge audience and if you're mitt romney, you have to explain to american voters why you can be commander in chief, and why you would be the replacement for president obama. >> isn't so much of this, though, leading up to wednesday night, the lowering of the expectations game, but to quote candy crowley, whenno s she was talking about chris christie, apparently chris christie didn't get the memo, but we showed this poll that shows that americans very much so expect the president to win this debate with mitt romney. might that be a good thing for mitt romney goinging into this with the lower numbers? >> sure. lower -- i never talked to as many romney advisers
